Joanna Gruesome share new track "Honestly Do Yr Worst"

Welsh rock'n'rollers Joanna Gruesome have lifted a new track called "Honesty Do Yr Worst" from upcoming LP Peanut Butter.

Like Biffy Clyro, they're unkeen to explain their origin story, at various points explaining that they met in "anger management", and on a "wine tasting holiday"; it doesn't really matter though, as they're quite great regardless. Their 2013 debut, Weird Sister, even won the Welsh Music Prize.

Principal songwriter Owen Williams has spoken about the new album, which apparently is about 'espionage, rival groups and the radical possibilities of peanut butter spread':

“We tried to make it shorter, more economical and attempted to pack as many hooks and screams in as quickly possible in order to avoid short changing the consumer or wasting her/his/their time. Lyrically it’s more obtuse and surreal but also attempts to mock trad masculine rock themes whenever things do get more lucid. But sometimes musically we embrace them by doing embarrassing guitar solos."

Peanut Butter is out via Fortuna POP! on 11 May.
